One writer’s fleeting thoughts
Devastating storms rip through Our Country!
One cannot even sign onto the internet without seeing the horrid evidence of the destruction that has struck America, from the Heartland to the South. Six States have been devastated by a series of recent storms which passed through them. President Obama describes the scenes as “heartbreaking”.
Without statistics or use of any morbid documentation, it can be simply summed up in one word. BAD! To such an extent that it has been categorized as very much more, than has been visited upon us in quite some time.
I don’t intend to speculate, or prognosticate on the Doom and Gloom bandwagon with the prophecies barkers that would point to just one more shred of evidence that the world is on the brink of the end of days. But I am taking a moment to pause, pray, and postulate.
I am thankful that the storms were not any worse than they have heaped on some who had already seen more than their fair share of devastation, and at a time financially when both our society’s people and it’s governments can ill afford such impact.
I offer my thoughts and prayers for those who have been so devastatingly impacted by these misfortunes. From not only a mournful point of view, but that they might be able to receive financial assistance quickly that they so desperately are in need of as well. For all who lost and survived, I hope for you a speedy recovery, and that you will find an inner strength that will see you through this horrible ordeal.
It is sad, but gratifying to pontificate that we as a people seem to find the best in ourselves at the worst of times. While indeed it is unfortunate that it takes such tragedy for us to exhibit such treatment and reverence for our fellow-man, yet again I am grateful that we as a society still possess these attributes.
